Collagraph Printmaking | Ages 12+

Collagraphy is a process that marries printmaking and collage. Rather than carving away at a surface, artists build up a collagraph printing plate by gluing together different cut shapes and textures. This type of printmaking is great for artists who prefer additive processes that build, rather than subtractive processes that remove. Students can expect to create their own unique collagraph plate and a small edition of prints in this class.
